The DBF feels strongly that the regional involvement of key local individuals and experts is the best way to attain consensus on key issues and to promote our potential involvement.
In this regard, The Dispute Board Federation maintains Operational Directors who advise us on regional customs, differences and protocols in the construction industry. Based upon this information, we can then formulate policy and procedures in dispute resolution and infrastructure development thus assisting both our members and governments who seek our assistance.
The regions covered by the Operational Directors vary within each group. We have one for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) which encompasses the U.A.E, Libya, Egypt, Bahrain, Tunisia and across North Africa, and another for Asia-Pacific which encompasses Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Australia.
